What should I do I have a 3 month old boxer/mastiff mix and she goes out every hour and right after she eats and she still pee's and poops in the house. I have tried praising her when she goes outside and giving her treats and it doesn't seem to work this is the first time I have had a dog I have to train on my own and have no clue what to do.

hey, so when you are potty training you want to keep in mind the five basic rules
1. outside after she wakes up
2. outside right after she eats
3. outside afte she plays
4. outside after she takes a nap
5. outside before bed

now if she does not go potty out side she needs to go straight into her crate for 5 - 10 min. DO NOT GIVE HER FREE REIGN UNTILL SHE HAS POTTIED OUTSIDE. then sright back out to potty again. somthing that might help is placeing the crate by the back door so that she does not have a chance to potty on her way out. praise and treats are always good right after she goes potty. when you cannot watch her 100 % of the time she needs to go into the crate. prevention is always best.
